Freight Program

Carriers & Delivery Times
Carrier selection

DARRAN selects and uses only carriers specialized in furniture transportation. Customer requested carriers can be authorized using freight-excluded pricing with invoice add-on as described above.

Specific delivery times

DARRAN will assist in coordinating a requested delivery time from a carrier. DARRAN makes no guarantees and accepts no responsibility for such services, as DARRAN has no control over possible carrier hazards. To ensure specific time arrival, we recommend arranging single stop, designated load carriers. Less than trailer load (LTL) shipments cannot be coordinated for a guaranteed delivery time.

Express carriers

When requested DARRAN will assist in locating special express carriers that may have short transit times. These services exceed our prepaid freight cost, therefore pricing is limited to the freight-excluded formula with special express charges added to invoice.

Fuel Surcharges

Because of fuel cost instability and carrier's applied fuel surcharges, DARRAN reserves the right to pass these costs on to the buyer. Surcharges will be added to the order acknowledgement as a separate line item notice after discount. This surcharge is net and not subject to discounting. Buyer will have the option to change the order from prepaid ship cost to collect ship cost.

Non-qualified Destinations

DARRAN prepaid freight pricing does not include delivery to:

  • Residential areas
  • Restricted commercial areas
  • No dock locations
  • Inside delivery / setup service

Orders having these situations can only be accepted less prepaid freight pricing and shipped collect per buyer's instructions. Orders received and installed without professional furniture installers voids all warranty coverage.
